Is IBM 3592 data tape still used?

IBM 3592 data tapes, also often called IBM 3592 storage tapes or backup 3592 tape drives, are still widely used as storage mediums, even with the popularity of more modern storage technologies like NVMe SSDs, including cloud storage options.

Even today, IBM 3592 data tape is considered the most cost-effective storage medium, especially for storing inactive data (that is no longer needed to be frequently sent/received.)

This is because an IBM 3592 storage data tape offers a larger storage capacity when compared to regular hard drives (and the more expensive SSDs) with the same price.

Not to mention, an IBM 3592 data tape is much more durable with a longer average life span than standard hard drives. HDDs only have an average lifespan of around 3 to 5 years, and SSDs have a slightly longer lifespan of between 5-10 years. Most IBM 3592 data tape manufacturers, on the other hand, quote the lifespan of data stored within 3592 data tapes as 30 years (assuming ideal storage conditions.)

IBM 3592 data tapes are also relatively easier to store and transport due to their compact sizes.

However, a 3592 data tape drive has a much slower transfer rate than hard drives and especially SSDs, so it is more geared towards storing inactive data rather than critical data used in day-to-day operations that require frequent data transfers.


Is IBM 3592 tape cheaper than a hard drive? How much does a 3592 data tape drive cost?

IBM 3592 data tapes are considered the most cost-effective storage medium for storing large and inactive data. IBM 3592 data tape storage has the lowest price per volume among all storage media.

For example, today, in July 2022, we can get a 4 TB IBM 3592JC data tape media that costs just around $149, resulting in a $ 0.0058/GB cost. On the other hand, a 2 TB EMC HDD costs around $499, 3 times more expensive with twices lower capacity. 

Not to mention, since IBM 3592 data tape storage consumes power only when the backup is being executed, there is almost zero power consumption while idling and almost no cost to maintain the 3592 data tape drive system.

In short, an IBM 3592 data tape is much cheaper than a hard drive when it comes to the total cost of ownership (TOC) after considering the total hardware, power consumption, facility, and maintenance costs.


Is IBM 3592 tape still the best option for backups?

Due to the most cost-effective unit price per capacity, IBM 3592 data tape is the best option for backups and handling storage of inactive data in general. The higher the number of IBM 3592 data tape cartridges, the lower the unit price of the entire system will be, making it even more cost-effective the larger your data backup volume goes.

Besides cost-efficiency, magnetic data date media are the best option for backups due to their safety and reliability. IBM 3592 data tape has very low risks of data loss due to virus attacks, power outages, or crashes, making it an ideal option for storing inactive data safely for a long time.


How long do IBM 3592 data tapes last?

Many manufacturers' data sheets claim that IBM 3592 data tapes could last up to 30 years. However, obviously, the practical life expectancies of 3592 data tape drive would vary depending on the storage environment condition, read/write volume, and other factors.

Nevertheless, on average, IBM 3592 data tape is designed for 15 to 30 years of data storage. Ideally, they should be stored at a temperature between 61 and 77 °F (16 and 25 °C) and between 20 – 50% RH in humidity.


How many times can an IBM 3592 data tape be used?

This will depend on the type and of IBM 3592 data tape, but most IBM 3592 data tapes can sustain 200 to 364 full file passes.

In IBM 3592 data tapes, one full pass refers to writing enough data to fill an entire 3592 tape, which can take between 44 and 208 end-to-end passes.

For example, IBM 3592JB data tapes have expected tape durability of 20,000 end-to-end passes and would require 208 end-to-end passes for a full pass.


How much data does an IBM 3592 data tape hold?

IBM 3592 LTO-6 data tapes have 12 TB uncompressed data capacity and 30 TB compressed capacity, while the newest 3592 LTO-9 data tapes have 18 TB uncompressed and 45 TB compressed data capacity.
